Sachi Koto & Maiko Takara
You may remember Sachi Koto from her years broadcasting on CNN and local Atlanta stations. But back when Sachi and her brothers and sisters were growing up in Stone Mountain in the 1950s, their family was the only Asian family around. Her grandparents had come to America from Japan in early 1900s, and her parents met while being held in an internment camp during World War II. After the war, they settled in Georgia, where it seemed like everyone else was either black or white. Sachi’s daughter-in-law Maiko Takara asked her about that time. Recorded in partnership with the Asian Pacific American Heroes Symposium at the National Archives in Morrow, GA.
